VERTIGO is a young and energetic band inspired by the music of Alexander Scriabin, Claude Debussy, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, ECM, as well as Bjork, Bill Frisell, John Zorn and Radiohead. VERTIGO started in late 2002 as a project of musicians with an idea to play their own music their own way. The result is an atmospheric mix of free jazz, drum&bass and ECM - type modern jazz, with respect to the vast history of music.
